Journal #33: The 3 a.m. Club.

The 3 a.m. Club.

Friday the May of 10th, 2024, the hour the Sun rises.

My second day in subsequence, waking up at 3 a.m. I've had this habit few years ago. Rising early even before our solar star and reading books, cooking, exercising, and much more. When the artist inside me woke up, giving birth to the writer, youtuber, and eventually a filmmaker, this habit faded away. I stretched and strained myself numerous times and on various occasions to get back this habit but I simply couldn't.

Now when I'm all crumbled and crushed down to ashes, I try to rise up like a Phoenix. Traumatized and depressed by the aftermaths of last year's toxicity I realized that I was beginning to lose a blessing that I most cherished but almost forgot. To regain this gift and subsume within me, I take an impossible journey that forces to live me in the present. And this has steered the artist in me waking up at 3 a.m. again.

3 a.m. The world sleeps. The Sun is yet to shine. Dead silence. I consume a few minutes to ascertain consciousness and go on with my corporeal needs. I settle down in my couch and begin the day by reading. Not one book but many. Having flexed my brain, I then give the space and time for my body. Now, I could cook or write. Or better. Do both. The days of the future will decide that.

When you wake up early, regardless of what time it is, you make more time. More time for anything and everything. You could cultivate new habits or simply have more time for the current ones. I received another blessings this year, discovering manga. And they are in surplus amounts that one lifetime would not be enough to imbibe them all. Imagine the surplusage of books. I need to make time for the most important aspects of my life right now. Books are certainly one of them.

Any new day will be filled with surprises, challenges, frustrations, and so on. It could be positive or negative. You need a braver version of you to step into this new day and transform into an exuberant one. Waking up early facilitates this. It's amazing and amusing.

Now I've been a night owl as well as an early bird. I would always prefer to be awake the complete twenty-four hours. But I am a human in a physical universe and I simply cannot. I only sense the cycles have changed and it's an early bird season in my life's weather calendar. Here and now. I try to live in the present and enjoy what I do out of interest, passion, and love. Waking up early is one of them.

They say to cultivate a habit, you need consistence, persistence and most importantly discipline. If I were to continue to waking up early, I need to have the three qualities. I need to make sacrifices, prohibit distractions, and set productive goals. I must. I desire and deserve what I love. And I will do anything and everything in my power to achieve the dream of my life.

The 3 a.m. club. Uncertain of how many are part of this club, I join and claim membership in it with much enthusiasm and hope. I believe you discover your own a.m. or p.m. club. And the person it makes you.

God Bless You!
